There's a lot of talking about how spreading of nuclear weapons (and WMD's in general) must be prevented, but still the current nuclear weapon countries, known as the Nuclear Club, keep their own equivalent weapons. The question is, should they reduce their own arsenal? Some civilized discussion about the subject.

yes they should. we have moved beyond the cold war. a full-out nuclear war is a highly unlikely scenario today. nukes are not needed in those numbers; and the more there's around, the more can be stolen/'lost'/accidently triggered.

No, we'll never be beyond cold-war style thinking, sooner or latter there's going to be someone who wants to fuck with us. I've seen the way our army is going, cuts in defence and defence related projects, the only thing that can hold them at bay will be the threat of nuclear annihilation.

The nuclear powers should keep some weapons, (ut not to disclose the amount), to prevent countries that have recently developed, or develop such weapons in the future, from trying to hold the world at gunpoint.

However, there in no need for a number in the thousands. Not even a few hundred.

So you're saying, that because America has nukes, there is less war.

And America had nothing to do at all with the massive build up of nukes I presume, nor a little thing called the cold war. Because that all of course led to worldwide stability.

If anything, its because America has nukes that other countries retaliate. One of NK's reasons for getting nukes is a deterrent to the US - "nuke us, and we'll nuke you back".

:beer:.

Rember MAD? That is what kept the cold war cold.

Don't get rid of them, if someone wants to go after us, all we have to say is "we have nukes and we will use them" and they will back off. Only a nutjob like Kim jong il would push a county to use them.
